Certified Organic.

An extremely cold hardy cover crop for protecting soil over the winter. Rye is extremely weed competitve, but can also compete with your cash crops. Superb for no-till applications, in which case the rye should be crimped at flowering (anthesis) or no later than soft dough stage.

For good biomass production, broadcast seed no later than 4 weeks after first frost at a rate of about 1#/250 sqft. Gently rake into soil. As cover crop can be seeded up until mid-November. Make sure to terminate at least 2 weeks before planting, or 3 weeks before planting if rye is already headed out.
